O sacred day, when first was poured

O sacred day, when first was poured

Published in 2 hymnals

Full Text

1 O sacred day, when first was poured
The blood of our redeeming Lord,
O solemn day, when first began
His sufferings for sinful man!

2 Just born into this world of woe,
His blood for man was made to flow;
His future death was thus expressed,
Thus, too, His early love confessed.

3 From heaven descending, to fulfil
The mandates of His Father's will,
E'en now behold the Victim lie,
The Lamb of God prepared to die.

4 Beneath the knife behold the Child,
The innocent, the undefiled;
For captives He the ransom pays,
For lawless man the Law obeys.

5 Lord, circumcise our hearts, we pray,
Our fleshly natures purge away;
Thy name, Thy likeness, may we bear;
O stamp Thy holy image there.
